THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The political situation in Germany at present is a complex one, but It is certain that the radicals are .demonstrating a power and an influence that cannot now be denied, and that if their demands in the Reichstag are not met, Germany will face a revolt which will mean Iter ultimate democratization. The dispatches of yesterday carried the news of a British reverse on the Belgian front. This apparently is an attempt by the Germans to counteract the offensive at Arras where tho British are pressing towards the occupation of Lens. The Germans gained several hundred yards of trenches at the Yser canal, near the sea coast. The Russian offensive is swinging along. The capture of Halicz has been completed, and the way is now clear to Lemberg, which, so nearly captured by the Russians earlier in the -war, is now certain to fall into j their hands -within a short time. The losses by submarines the past �week as shown by the British summary are lighter than ever. LETHBRIDGE AUTO OWNERS SHOULD LEAD. The suggestion that a provincial league of automobile clubs be formed Is one that should appeal to everyone interested in the cause of good roads. What such, an organization ~ctoiv accomplish in the way of securing the attention of the government In maintaining roads throughout the province can easily be imagined. Lethbridge should not be content to follow In this matter. The suggestion is being put forward by Calgary at the present time, but when the Lethbridge club was formed last March, It was one of the aims of the promoters that a provincial organization should be formed. What the auto owners of Lethbridge should do is to bring their own membership to the very largest number so that weight of membership will entitle which had been sold. Just recently tho Manitoba provincial government succeeded In inducing the Dominion government to pny five per cent, instead of three per cont. on the school fund held in trust, and it Is hoped now that Alberta will receive similar treatment. Pealing with this Important ojies-tion. the Calgary Alhertan recently pointed out that If this is put into effect for Alberta, it will mean an increased revonuo for education purposes of at least $52,102.Sfi on school land revenues nlready collected. Were the school land fund properly accounted for and all overdue capital collected, tho annual increase of revenue to the province would be $179,-I95.S1 per year. The western provinces have a longstanding grievance on this score. The fund in derived from the sale of lands set apart in each township for school purposes. Like other natural resources, these lands, although reserved for tho benefit of the province, are administered by the Dominion government. Tho Dominion sells this land from time to time, places the proceeds in a fund, which it invests In various securities, and pays the interest to the province. Up to date, the government has disposed of Alberta lands to the value of $4,749,-S19.55, and of this amount there is overdue principal uncollected amounting to $2.547,859.15. The Dominion government is In arrears to the province $7S3,04l.A3 on this account. Up to date tho province has received only three per cent, on the principal collected, although very little money in Canada is bringing less than o\~> per cent, at present. Provincial Treasurer Mitchell pointed out at the last session, that the government's own war bonds would pay the province five per cent. The raising ol the rate of interest is only one of the first steps necessary to the proper handling of this fund. It the fund were accounted for properly, the province should be receiving $34S,722 per year from this source. The province expended $1.070,S3G on education for the year 1916, of which $G00,OS5 were school grants. With an additional revenue of ?1S0,-000 a great deal of necessary work could be carried on.
